Graduate School

Before you Apply Online

Thank you for considering applying to Graduate School at Eastern Michigan University. 

The next step is to apply for admission to EMU. When you leave this page, select “First time user account creation.” 

Once there, you will be asked to create a login ID and a pin. Choose any name you wish, but your PIN number must be six digits long.

  • Select application type: 1. Graduate Program if you are applying for a graduate program.
  • Select application type: 2. Graduate Non Degree if you are applying as a non-degree student.

You will then be asked to select a term and for your personal contact information and then to complete an application.  

You will be asked to submit a concise but well-written personal statement about your reasons for wanting to attend Graduate School for your specific program. It would be a good idea to write it in a word processor then copy and paste it into the submission box. Keep in mind that program faculty will be reading your statement to make an admission recommendation.

There may be other requirements for entry into your particular program; for example, letters of reference are often required. Review the Degrees & Programs section of our web site to review the required documents. 

Once your application is complete, send your transcripts and other admission documents to:

Office of Admissions
Eastern Michigan University
PO Box 970
Ypsilanti, MI 48197

If you have questions about the application process, contact: 
The Office of Admissions or (734) 487-3400. Contact the department for specific program questions. If you have already started an application and received a Login ID and a PIN, please continue to the Login page.
